Reviews Follow Me (The Amateurs, #2)

  • Emma Giordano
    2 stars. I was extremely disappointed with this sequel. I knew The Amateurs wasn’t a great novel and my attachment to the story was entirely based on it’s addictive quality, but Follow Me procured no excitement from me, leaving me with just an unenjoyable, poorly written book.I was very hopeful that with Follow Me being the sequel, my issues with the construction would improve. I’m happy to say that by the end of the story, the writing impr...

    *Note: I was sent a copy of this book by the publisher. That did not influence my opinion.*Not my favorite in terms of suspense level, but I did enjoy reading this and appreciate how it was structured. In this mystery the reader and the Amateurs know who the killer is but are racing to follow his clues to find him before he strikes again. If you don't like knowing the identity of the killer in mysteries, I can imagine you wouldn't enjoy this. The...

    Follow Me is the second instalment in Sara Shepard’s series featuring teenage amateur sleuths and having won a copy of this book, several reviews mentioned that it does not work as a standalone. This is certainly something that I can corroborate as without a knowledge of the first investigation, this investigation doesn’t have much to appeal to an uninitiated audience. The closing moments of The Amateurs blew the online friends who contribute...
  • Maddie
    I definitely didn't enjoy this one as much as the first, mostly because it felt like a mystery without any mystery - we knew who the killer was from the very first page! My favourite secondary characters in the first book, Aerin and Madison, were practically non-existent and social media ended up doing more of the legwork than Seneca or Maddox did combined. (Also, trying to crowbar in a romance subplot was just not a good idea.)It was very fast p...

    I didn't really click with this one. I haven't read the first in the series but there is enough at the beginning that this isn't a problem. I think, for me, I mostly didn't like the characters. Some of them seemed superfluous to the story and didn't add much to it. I struggled to get into the story and ended up skipping quite a bit. Not for me.Free arc from netgalley

    4.5 StarsI have been dying for Follow Me since I finished reading The Amateurs last fall. This book follows a group of teen detectives who attempt to track down a killer. The multiple perspectives work nicely, and the main characters are all enjoyable. This is a perfect mystery series, and I can’t wait until the final book is released next year!This is the second instalment in The Amateurs series, and is just as eerie as the first. It follows a...

    Mysteries where you already know the identity of the killer for the majority of the plot can be a hit or a miss. It worked for me in There's Someone Inside Your House as I felt it added a layer of suspense to the story. It became more about the cat-and-mouse thrills than the clue-hunting. Follow Me also managed to blend those two elements together quite well and I think that is why I enjoyed this a smidge more than The Amateurs. The characters di...

    You know how sometimes you can't wait for a book to come and then when it does you pick it up as you have high hopes that you will love it. That's what happened with Follow Me by Sara Shepard as I normally am a big fan of her books. However, I felt a little letdown with Follow Me which is a shame as I really wanted to love it. Book #1 finished on a major cliffie with the reveal that Ben wasn't really Brett and in fact he was the same killer who k...
  • K.
    Trigger warnings: murder, kidnapping, death of a loved one (in the past). 2.5 stars. I wasn't planning on reading this book. I felt pretty meh towards the first book in the series, so continuing wasn't really high on my list of priorities. But after the way the first book finished, I felt like I *had* to continue. And I kind of wish I hadn't. I didn't care at all about the case in this one, and it didn't seem to even really lead anywhere followin...
  • Lauren R.
    Another classic Sara Shepard! I can never really bring myself to rate her books any lower than this because of how incredibly easy to read they are. I love speeding through and trying to figure out how it’ll end. I like that her newer series have taken on more twists so they’re not exactly the same as PLL.
  • Kirra
    Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars Sara Shepard's dark, dangerous journey into the anonymous world of online crime solving really appealed to me with the first book in this series, The Amateurs, and now we've returned with the sequel, Follow Me! The thing I loved most about the first novel was that these people dedicated a lot of their time in this community with the sole mission of solving crimes the actual police and detectives had given up on. There is ...
  • Kirsty
    I freakin loved the first book in this series. It was interesting and mysterious, and even though I enjoyed this book, it wasn't as good as I'd anticipated. I wanted something more, something that I just didn't get. Don't get me wrong, I loved the writing. Every thing flowed and it gripped me. As for the story though, it was kind of repetitive... (view spoiler)[ It kind of annoyed me that the whole way through they were outsmarted and one step be...
  • Brenda Ayala
    I am glad I never tried watching Pretty Little Liars. If that show is anything like this book I am positive I would’ve shut it off after one episode. Maybe less.I have no interest in rich snobby teens who think they’re the cat’s pajamas and fancying themselves as better detectives than everyone else. Our bad guy is just ridiculous. If he’s such a criminal mastermind why not mess with the actual cops? This book is trying to tell me that a ...
  • Jenny
    Etwas schwächer als Teil 1.Ich hab mich trotzdem wieder gut unterhalten gefühlt und auch wenn ich nicht immer alle Entscheidungen der Protagonisten so nachvollziehen konnte,war es insgesamt dann doch für mich wieder stimmig.Bin gespannt wie es im dritten Teil weitergehen wird.

    Ich liebe die Bücher von Sara Shepard. Bisher ist immer ein funke 'pretty little liars' in ihnen zu finden. Es liest sich so flüssig und schnell das man es nur weg atmet. und was natürlich nicht fehlen darf ist ein mega fieser Cliffhanger. Wann nur bitte soll Band 3 erscheinen? 😭
  • Mandy
    Wow! I totally did not see *spoiler* being the murderer. I thought it was someone else! She kept me hanging at the end of every chapter. I wonder if Sara has another book planned?

    I like what I like, and sometimes, I really like a cheesy teen mystery series. Come at me. 💁🏼♀💁🏼♀ I like what I like, and sometimes, I really like a cheesy teen mystery series. Come at me. 💁🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️
  • Sammi
     This book was a fun read, however I there wasn't much mystery. The book followed the same story line as the first, minus a dead body. Pretty blonde, who bears a striking resemblance to Helena, is missing. Can the gang find her before its too late. Can they  catch the killer before he has the chance to kill again. You know all the usual drama.Yes we still have to figure out who the killer was masquerading as this time and honestly I feel like a...

    Nach dem Cliffhanger konnte ich es kaum erwarten weiter zu lesen, jedoch muss ich sagen, dass mich dieser Teil sehr enttäuscht hat. Aber zunächst etwas zum Inhalt:Am Ende des ersten Bands finden Aerin, Seneca und Maddox heraus, dass sie nicht den richtigen Täter aufgedeckt haben - denn dieser war dieser war die ganze Zeit unter ihnen. Jedoch wissen die Freunde nicht einmal ob "Brett" sein richtiger Name ist und wo er sich gerade befindet. Denn...

    AHHHH I NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOW!!!!So after THAT reveal in the first book, the gang had gone their separate ways, but looking over their shoulders for a certain someone to show up. And show up, they did. Chelsea Dawson, a beautiful blonde 21-year old with over 50,000 followers on Instagram, disappears one night after arguing with her ex-boyfriend Jeff at a beach party. Suspicion soon falls on poor Jeff, but we know from the beginning he is not to ...

    I enjoyed the prologue and the way it turned sinister so suddenly. After the prologue, I found it a bit confusing to work out who everyone was, but this is probably because I haven't read the first book in the series. Seneca and her friends helped to solve a murder mystery but soon after, she finds out that Brett, one of the group, was the real murderer and he got away with it unpunished. Now there has been a kidnapping and Seneca is convinced it...

    "The Amateurs - Wenn drei sich streiten" von Sara Shepard ist der zweite Band einer Reihe. Der erste Teil war echt toll, er war spannend und konnte mich fesseln und es war auf einer Weise auch etwas besonderes. Der zweite Teil war ganz okay. Es war auch gut und spannend, jedoch habe ich mich an manchen Stellen etwas gelangweilt und ich habe Angst, dass die nächsten Teile auch langweiliger werden, da es irgendwie immer das gleiche ist. Da wir nun...

    I did not enjoy this book as much as the first. This book lacked the mystery of the first book as we knew who the killer was from the very start. The Amateurs are drawn into another mystery when a girl is kidnapped. Brett leaves them clues so that the group can find her before he kills again. I felt that the group spent a lot of time apart in this book and we didn't get to see as much of Madison and Aerin as we did in the first book. We saw a lot...
  • Natalie
    Another well done YA thriller by Sara Shepard. I have to say I didn't remember much of the first book, especially about how the characters' lives intersected, but I still enjoyed the book a lot. In this book, the characters are in a race against time to save a kidnap victim. I thought the kidnapping was really well done. There were aspects to it that were different from most other thrillers, which made it enjoyable to read about. The ending was v...
  • Karen Barber
    Honestly, you need to have read book one to really be interested in this or to really understand it. There’s a handy recap of events but it does all depend on you knowing the details to get much out of it.I can’t give too much away about this, without spoiling book one. However, the teens in this are determined to solve the mystery left after book one. On this occasion we have a popular social media icon who disappears. We know what’s happe...

    I've been addicted to Sara Shepard's novels ever since reading the first Pretty Little Liars books years and years ago, and I do believe her Amateurs series about a group of young sleuths who met on a cold case forum is one of her best ones yet. After the shock cliffhanger at the end of the first book, we dive straight back into the action in 'Follow Me'. A message from Brett arrives, and the gang gets back together to find him once and for all. ...
